Now I love Facebook; there’s not many days I don’t log on. Facebook is my life in pictures; it’s silly, inane comments that only my friends and family get; it’s me at my rawest: No facade, no show, just me. If you’re my Facebook friend and I’m having a bad day, then you’ll probably hear about it in rather passionate prose… But you know what; I don’t have very many Facebook friends! I won’t befriend anyone I haven’t met, anyone I don’t like, or anyone I think there’s even a remote chance I might… Continue

I'm not a big fan of the term Community Manager. Manager implies command and control to me. From my experience of building online communities (eg Recruitment 2.0 Asia Pacific), this Manager nomenclature just doesn't seem to fit. Joining a community is typically voluntary and community members don't want some person pushing them to participate. The cold hard fact is that most people… Continue

I've taken over 1000 pictures most of which will never see the light of day, are understandable only with some explanation like a picture of a dish of chutney where I made the chef explain his personal recipe using lemon and toasted spices that short circuited my taste buds this morning.

As recruiters, we are sometimes driven people, always seeking our personal best and we also impact a lot of other lives without even knowing it. So keep paying it forward... it truly works!
Last week I received a DM on LI from my former executive coach "deep mind explorer" Erl-Morrell Stinson
He asked me… Continue

If you read the majority of articles regarding leadership, a common attribute among the best is vision. Great leaders are able to create and convey their vision for the organization's success. Furthermore, they are able to provide a road map of how to get there. This is how leaders create buy-in among the troops and gain the commitment and dedication necessary to execute that vision. This aspect of great leaders made me think about how these same qualities apply to successful executive search… Continue

I received a cold call on my office line the other day from a recruiter who identified himself as Chad. He told me he had heard great things about me and was referred to me from someone named Jamie Richardson. This caught me off guard & I couldn’t think of who Jamie Richardson was so I asked what this was regarding. Chad told me he had a great opportunity and loved my background for it & we should talk.
I told him I'm not in the market for a new position, but could know some people… Continue

AS A TRAINER
, I have always used various approaches to help get people engaged. We all know that this can be a difficult feet. For those of us that have been doing it for years we don't see the big deal. It's simple isn't it? Ultimately you use what best fits your personality, meshes with the audience that you are presenting to, and what can ultimately reflect the message and learning you are trying to reinforce. Am I right? Media, should reinforce and appeal to the content you… Continue

One of my all-time favorite writers, Bill Simmons* of ESPN, credits Rocky Balboa for ending the Cold War
by defeating Ivan Drago in Rocky IV . The thought is intriguing. Communism began its decline very shortly after this movie’s release.
I watched Rocky IV for the 200th time over the Thanksgiving holidays. I was astonished by the allegorical similarity of Rocky’s one-man disarming of the… Continue

Yesterday I was reminded about of my first visit to China.
During the long drive from the airport to Beijing’s downtown, I marveled at the ability of the Chinese [gov’t] to hide thousands of its poorest citizens behind a never ending array of ingenious landscaping devices- miles of carefully planted trees and plants, well positioned walls and mounds, all designed to obscure our view of ordinary people going about their daily lives.
Regardless of China’s motivation for… Continue

The fuel door on my car is busted. We had a little mishap at the gas station the other day and the fuel door latch was thankfully the only minor casualty. It won’t take much to replace it however the interruption to the crush of work and holiday schedule is annoying. It sounds odd perhaps but I think it was my car’s way of telling me to slow down the usual driving pace before moving forward. Compatible to the inevitable year-end reflection and resolution-making, the following is my glimpse in… Continue
